Hiking photos - Brush-rest Mountain, Sept. 5 2009
Brush-rest Mountain is named for its peculiar yet distinctive shape – a series of sharp points that look a lot like the type of brush rest commonly used by Chinese watercolour painters. We visited on September 5th for a walk up and down valleys, over Great Wall, and through a whole lot of leaves and bushes. The sky was cloudy and misty, which made the temperature cooler.
